Fast-ferry sails to Sitka through mid-January

SITKA, ALASKA The Alaska Marine Highway has posted a revised schedule for the coming winter that includes more service to Sitka from the fast ferries.
The tradeoff is that the LeConte will continue its current dayboat schedule, and connections between Sitka and the villages will have to be made through Juneau – sometimes requiring a layover of several nights.
The school district, on the other hand, could see significant savings.
